. . . .

Michael Korosty is an art teacher for adults and children with 19 years of experience. He began teaching art at PK Art Center in 1994, while still being an art student at Pratt Institute, majoring in Painting with minor in Art Education. Since then, he has been teaching academic(classic) painting and drawing to children as young as five, as well as adults in their senior years and all age groups in between. Some of the students became professional artists, many were accepted into the finest art colleges, and all have discovered something great, unique and inspiring about art, along the way!

Whether you are interested to build a portfolio, expand your drawing skills so that you can simply draw anything you see or imagine, or want to explore the creative & meditative part of your soul without Becoming a professional artist, if you wish to expand your hand/eye coordination, ability to focus – art is a great way to accomplish those goals, and Michael is an experienced teacher and a “working artist” In his own right who will help you along the way of “getting there”.

Having started as a student back in Ukraine, where the emphasis was put on learning the actual skill and technique of academic/realistic drawing and painting, Michael expanded his education at LaGuardia School of Art in NYC, and Pratt Institute, receiving his BFA with honors and has been actively and successfully pursuing his career as a contemporary exhibiting artist – participating in national and international art shows, working as an illustrator and graphic artist with corporate and private clients.

Lessons are usually structured around drawing or painting “from observation” - that is, we have something to look at, like a “still life” of fruits or musical instruments, for example. Other times we may draw outdoors, looking at reality around us, be it a landscape or a cityscape. We may be drawing a human figure or a portrait, or doing a “self-portrait” while looking in the mirror. Working “from observation” is a great way to train your eye, hand and mind in coordination with each other. It is the best way to see if you are making the actual progress. Your growing skills should be visible to you, your teacher and anyone else just by looking and comparing what is in front of you to what's on your paper or canvas.

At the same time, exploring and developing skills of imagination, composition, creativity, expression, improvisation - all are great to develop in more “abstract” forms and exercises. We develop all of these skills with a personalized attention to your pace of growth, your personality and interests. You may feel you are more of a “watercolor” painter, or or may be “charcoal” drawing is your passion - all of it is seriously considered as Michael tailors his instruction to each individual student. Michael Korosty believes that art is a great spiritual journey for a skilled traveler - as a teacher, his first responsibility is to help you attain those skills necessary to succeed on your path of discovery.
